RIVERSIDE vocalist/bassist Mariusz Duda comments about the band's ongoing touring cycle:
"The aim of the 'Towards The Blue Horizon Tour' is to prove that Riverside, in spite of the earthquake of February 2016, have got back to their feet and have been reborn stronger than ever. We are really glad that after the extremely successful April leg in Poland and May leg in the Western Europe, we will be able to play the September leg in Scandinavia. We know that our fans in Sweden, Norway and Finland have been waiting for us for a long time. We're also going to play in Denmark for the first time. These will be incredibly emotional and unforgettable evenings. We look forward to seeing you all there!"
RIVERSIDE have recently announced guitarist Maciej Meller to complete the band's line-up for shows after taking a longer break from any live performances due to the tragic passing of founding member and guitarist Piotr Grudziński on February 21st, 2016.
Last October RIVERSIDE released a complementary instrumental album entitled "Eye Of The Soundscape", including 13 experimental and highly atmospheric compositions, which showcase RIVERSIDE's ambient electronic side. The release entered the sales charts in various European countries as follows: Germany # 69, Switzerland # 92, The Netherlands # 60, Belgium (Flemish) # 122, Belgium (Wallonia) # 112 and Poland # 4.
"Eye Of The Soundscape" compiles all the special instrumental RIVERSIDE tracks previously used as bonus material for the "Shrine Of New Generation Slaves" and "Love, Fear And The Time Machine" albums, alongside rare cuts as well as 4 new songs ("Where The River Flows", "Shine", "Sleepwalkers" and "Eye Of The Soundscape") into a massive playing time of +100 minutes, available as 2CD-Mediabook, 3LP (With both CD's as bonus and an etching on Side F!) or as Digital Download.
